    92 vs 12 would Howard and Bynum make a difference?

    I don't think that this years Olympic team could beat the dream team they are better defensively and a lot bigger, I think it would be a close game but I don't see todays team winning. But say if Bynum and Howard were both healthy and playing for this team, that's a big improvement over Tyson chandler, I think they could win against the dream team with both of these guys on the roster

    Your thoughts?

    It would help, but still not enough.

    The problem isn't that the 92 team has bigs, the problem is that nearly the Entire TEAM is BIG.

    Magic was 6'8" ... a 6'8" POINT GUARD.

    Yes, the 2012 team can score... from the outside. Other than Lebron, they won't be getting in the paint. Durant will get his shots, but other than that expect the length and size of the 1992 team to cause real problems.

    Meanwhile, the 2012 team won't be guarding the 1992 team very well.

    I don't care how fast Westbrook is, he isn't stopping anyone from getting a clear shot when he's giving up 6-9 inches.

    Nobody is stopping MJ. Barkley is one of the most dominant big men to ever put on sneaks. Stockton's defense is way under rated... the man was an on ball defensive beast. Ewing, Malone, and Barkley were 2 way Big Men. Clyde the Glide? His athleticism is breathtaking for a big man. Even Larry Bird's outside jumper is basically unstoppable. If you can't stop Dirk, you're not stopping Bird. And Bird was more well rounded than Dirk by miles.

    The sheer number of Bigs would eventually exhaust the entire 2012 line.

    In the end it comes down to matchups. Too many tools that the 2012 team can't stop, not enough tools that the 1992 team can't stop.

    11 Hall of Famers. Think about that. 11 HOF players. And only TWO of them (Magic and Bird) were over the age of 30... IE, in the primes of their careers.

    Make no mistake, the 2012 team is good... they're just not the Dream Team.

    If you are going to add guys to the 12 team then add Olajuwon to the 92 team.

    If your watching the gold metal game...it shows you why the 12 team has no chance on 92. They are just too small.

    I'd pay to see the 96 team vs. the 92 team. And with Shaq, Hakeem and Robison... man... it's hard to imagine a team with those three losing. I mean, the 96 team had the center rotation that the 92 team should of have.

    Shaq/Robinson/Hakeem > Robinson/Ewing/Laettner

    Maybe so, however the 1992 PF were better and also the PG and SG.

    The PF's were the same. Not unless you are including Laettner and in that case, hell no.
